Weather Mapping

Lately we’ve been talking about how different places have different weather (the girls have been very disappointed it’s not snowing here) so I decided to have us map out the weather.

I wanted to keep the map simple, just the general states, so I used this one from nationalatlas.gov (a great site).

Then I used our weather cards to make these stickers.  We have some sticker paper for the printer but we’ve also just used full size labels in the past.

We put out a call on Facebook asking our friends to share photos of what it looked like outside.  With each picture, we added a sticker to our map.  After just a few stickers the girls started noticing patterns with the weather and understanding how the weather was different everywhere.  This is still a work in progress, but thank you so much to all our friends who helped us!
